Chesnee residents seek to unincorporate their town

7 posts in this topic


Interesting. I think that would be a bad move on Chesnee's part. The person metioned who opposed this move was right, there would be no controls on how things are developed in the town as Spartanburg County has weaker regulations and no zoning.

The town should first audit itself on all fronts and determine ways to improve itself. There are probably ineffeciencies and duplicated service in some places. Other towns in Spartanburg County have managed to exist without finiancial problems, so something tells me Chesnee is not doing something as well as it could be.

Here is an article from the Herald-Journal about this topic.

The people who are opposing the town have a very weak argument, IMO. They don't talk about the benefits of zoning, local control and enforcement of laws, etc.

Would the proposed city-county consolidation help to mitigate some of the concerns the proponents of deannexation have?

Who is a proponent of that? I've never heard of it, and I'm not sure if its possible.

I would assume that the answer is yes because you remove all jurisdictions and city boundaries.

I meant unincorporation, not deannexation--sorry about that. I was actually wondering if I used the right word in that post as I was driving through Chesnee earlier (I'm in Atlanta now).

Ah, ok. In that case, it would make consolidation that much easier. You would have one less entity to voice their opinion on the matter. However, I don't have a lot of confidence in the success of consolidation, so I'd prefer to see the town continue to live.
